BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH: Evolife Team Up with Unilab

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH: Evolife Team Up with Unilab

Evolife products are formulated
for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. Alleviating the Side Effects of Cancer treatment.
With the growing
census of cancer incidence in the country, there is real concern in
providing supportive care not only during treatment but more so when
the treatment side effects start manifesting.
For cancer patients,
managing the side effects is as important as addressing the cancer
itself. According to doctors, side effects can compromise treatment
and even recovery. According to Dr.
Maria Luisa Abesamis-Tiambeng, M.D., head of the CSMC Cancer
Institute, M.D. “The psychological scars caused by the physical
manifestations of treatment, like rashes, skin discoloration,
blackened nails and falling hair erode patients’ self-esteem and
the will to fight. But psychological well-being is crucial to a
successful treatment. If cancer patients feel low and miserable,
their response to treatment is greatly affected. So if the side
effects of treatment do not bother the patient, their treatment
regimen becomes more tolerable, if not welcome. Products like Evolife
can help make patients commit to their treatment regimen and achieve
the ultimate cure. These innovative products can prove crucial in
licking the Big C.”
In a concerted effort
to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, Point
of Care Solutions Inc. (PCSI)
 in
partnership with United
Laboratories
recently
introduced Evolife products to the Philippines.
 
PCSI is the exclusive distributor of
Evolife’s full range of cancer-support care products that treat the
cutaneous and cutaneous-mucuos side effects induced by chemotherapy
and radiotherapy. Evolife products are the result of years of
research and development by a dedicated team of dermatologists,
oncologists, and scientists based in France. Evolife Products contain
a unique blend of natural minerals that provide premium hydration and
protection for patients undergoing cancer treatment. They are the
first and only products of their kind that are effective, uniquely
designed with the needs of cancer patients in mind, and they are well
tested,” says oncologist J.F. Chanez in “The Neurogenic Component
of Cutaneous Toxicities Induced by Chemotherapy – New Solutions”,
European Oncology Journal, Vol 6:1, 28-30.
Michael S. Avelino. Managing Director of
Point of Care Solutions, Inc. said “As the company’s initial
offering, Evolife products deliver the company’s passion and
commitment to help cancer patients improve their quality of life.”
Evolife products underwent clinical trials
in the Philippines in 2011 and produced very positive results,
Avelino added.
Evolife products consist of skin care
products (EvoSkin Gel Cream and Evolife Hydrating Skin Cleanser which
provide a unique hydrating solution for skin side effects of cancer
therapy such as cracks, dryness and a burning sensation), oral care
products (EvoMucy mouthwash and spray for mouth sores, EvoLip for
chapped or sensitive lips, EvoDry mouth spray to combat mouth and
throat dryness and EvoDonto toothpaste for sensitive and irritated
gums), a scalp care product (EvoCapil hydrating hair spray that calms
the scalp and rejuvenates hair follicles to encourage hair
re-growth), a hygiene product (EvoDeo Deodorant Spray, an
alcolohol-free deodorant spray for hypersensitive skin controls hot
flashes and excessive sweating) and nail care products (EvoNail which
helps revitalize darkened, yellow, brittle or cracked nails and
restores them to their natural state).

Cancer patient, Tina, who underwent
chemotherapy and radiotherapy, experienced mouth sores and burning
sensations on her skin. “The mouth sores were too painful to eat
anything so I lost a lot of weight. After my doctor recommended
EvoMucy mouth wash the sores disappeared in 3 days for good.This
helped me regain my energy as I went through with my treatment. I
also used EvoSkin Gel Cream and EvoNail. After using it for a few
days, the burning sensation went away and my nails did not blacken at
all, unlike other patients undergoing treatment.”
This new product line will complement the
existing cancer treatment regimen being offered by Unilab and will
provide a wholistic supportive care program for cancer patients.

You can register your kids, aged 5 to 12 years old, in the Ceelin 500-meter dash, a perfect way to jumpstart their journey to fitness. You, your husband and older children can join the other race categories: 3km, 5km, 10km and 21km.

 

Registered participants of 500-meter dash, 3km, 5km, and 10km will receive their singlet upon registration.

The participants of the 21k category will have a different singlet color design which makes the runners extra special, aside from the freebies that they will get during the race expo in BGC and the 2nd piece of the collectible medal and finisher shirt. A personalized RunRio Timing Card will be exclusively given to them they just need to present their old IPICO timing chip during the registration to get the replacement.

“Active Health delivers Unilab’s vision of providing active health solutions for Filipino families,” Unilab Active Health Head Alex Panlilio said. “We encourage families to start or continue leading active lives through our events like Run United.

Active Health Sport Events Executive Lester Castillo said, “As we have always done in the past, we continuously improve Run United series to give runners a better experience and encourage them to keep running. Through our partnership with Coach Rio dela Cruz, Run United has become one, if not the best, running event in the country.”

As a testament to the level of commitment that Active Health brings to the runners, it has brought in the Team Bike Boutique, the official merchandise partner of Ironman races worldwide, to organize the Run United Race Expo happening on June 13-16, 2012 at the BGC Grounds near Mercato. 

The race expo completes the active health experience by gathering runners, sports enthusiasts and their families in this four-day event. Runners can hang out with their friends while checking out the coolest and latest sports apparel. Fitness and athletic brands also present their latest products and services, including gadgets, running gear, among others. 

Coach Rio dela Cruz said the race expo brings Run United to a whole new level. “Major international marathons like the ING New York Marathon and Chicago Marathon hold their own expos days before the event. Together with UNILAB Active Health, we look at some of the best practices from international races, and apply them to the Run United Series to further enhance the race experience of the Filipino running community.”
